Sunday 07 October

by Michael Fowkes

It's been a long day for Dad and he can hardly keep his eyes open. All he wants if for Baby to go to sleep so he can catch a little shut-eye too. Dad's usually got some tricks up his sleeve to help send Baby off to the Land of Nod. But tonight, Baby has other ideas...let the fun and games begin!

Including magical puppetry and a world of delight, join us for Sleepyhead this October.
